Breaking News!  A federal judge has ordered the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to collect employee pay data by September 30, 2019 from those employers required to complete the EEO-1 Report.

Under this order the EEOC will require employers to provide employee pay data sorted by race, ethnicity, and sex by September 30th.  This is in addition to the regular EEO-1 Report that is due May 31st.  The EEOC said it anticipates having the collection portal available to employers by July 15th and will provide guidelines/training prior to that date.

This will apply to any employer located in the 50 states or the District of Columbia and who has at least 100 employees.  Also, all federal government contractors and first-tier subcontractors with at least 50 employees and at least $50,000 in contracts must also file.  The deadline for the EEO-1 Report does not change, all reports must be filed by May 31st.
